Kirby McInerney LLP announced today that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who acquired CannaVEST Corp. (“CannaVEST” or the “Company”) (OTC:CANV) securities during the period from May 20, 2013 through April 3, 2014. Investors have until June 23, 2014 to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the shareholder lawsuit.

On April 4, 2014, the Company revealed that its previously issued financial statements for the quarters ended March 31, 2013, June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2013 were materially inaccurate and would be restated due to errors associated with the purchase price allocation for the assets acquired related to PhytoSPHERE Systems. Shares of CannaVEST are down from a close of $30.00 per share on April 4, 2014, to a most recent close of $20.70 per share.
